Question by JoeUser: Can I sue Web Designer who lost my files?
I hired a Web designer to create a website for my company. I specifically asked if I would own the site after it was created. He assured me I would. I am in the military(deployed a lot) and failed to maintain the site so it eventually went down. The host told me the files were gone. Is it not the Web Designers responsibility to provide me with the files associated with the Website that I purchased from him?
Thanks Onitz….But How could I have ever made a back up if the files were never given to me? Don’t the files belong to me since I bought the website from him?
Answer by Onitz
Not really, it would be professional, but ultimately its you’r responsibility to make a backup – not his.
